2 Charged With Murder After 16-Year-Old, 20-Year-Old Found Dead Near White Lake Township Pond

WHITE LAKE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (CBS DETROIT) -- Two men are charged after a 16-year-old and a 20-year-old were found dead near a pond in White Lake Township.

According to the White Lake Township Police Department, Steven Morrow and Jesse Wright, both 18, are charged with two counts of felony murder, two counts of armed robbery and four counts of possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony in the shooting death of Drake Mancuso, 16, and Cameron Duckworth, 20.

Both men were arraigned Wednesday in 52-2 District Court.

Police say at about 8:51 a.m. on May 21, officers were called for an unresponsive person near a pond in the Cedarbrook Estates Mobile Home Park. Two people, identified as Mancuso and Duckworth, were found with multiple gunshot wounds.

An investigation revealed that Morrow and Wright devised a plan to rob the victims. Police say the four people drove to the mobile home park and agreed to go to a wooded area next to the pond.

Morrow allegedly fatally shot both victims before going back to the vehicle, driven by Wright, and leaving the scene to dispose of the evidence.

Both men were taken into custody on May 22.

Bond was denied for them and they will remain in Oakland County Jail pending court proceedings.
